Krakow is a wonderful city and the ICE Krakow Congress Centre is a great location to host a world championship.

As soon as I entered I was welcomed by a modern and futuristic building. Impressive.

The first thing I noticed was the great sound system that welcomed us into the competition. Great stage lighting and a perfect view with a maxi screen completed it. I could see all the action and hear each sound clearly and loudly.

There were Djs from all over the world competing for different categories: Technical, best show and scratch. I was impressed by Beatbombers from Portugal. The duo’s performance was very exciting and inspiring. They used multiple machines showing us their great skills as finger drummers and turntablists. The Prodigy mash up at the end was very much appreciated!

Special mention goes to Tas and VaZee (who won the online scratch battle) from Poland that showed us how talented Polish Djs are.

I also enjoyed the special performances by Dj Rafik and Kentaro that were just a confirmation of their huge talent as musicians and performers. The overall level was very high and it was indeed a great night. Well done Poland and IDA!
